4HughManatee LLC Creates An Icon So Humanity Gets the Message

Hugh Manatee has a sweet, endearing appeal as an environmental icon. This mascot has the potential to bring more understanding about the take-away from the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change, if only President Donald Trump had not withdrawn from it. Humanity needs the political will to acknowledge climate change and the dangers ahead for all of us. The dangers are already presenting themselves with so many signs. Bill McKibben on CNN's Fareed Zakaria's GPS show on Easter Sunday to talk about his new book, "Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?" and so many other books he has written, define the issues of climate change. I want to do something about it.

This is why I came up with "Hugh" who is a manateePut it all together and it sounds like the word "humanity." The sustainability of our planet has never been more in peril with the rise of carbon in our atmosphere. What used to be called GREENHOUSE GASES, the increasing amount of these particles from the burning of fossil fuels makes climate change worse and worse. Air and water pollution are doing damage to our planet. The evidence is clear. We need to display this mascot to stand strong against the fossil fuel industry by showing support for Hugh Manatee. If people will be open to understanding the stakes, Hugh Manatee can help educate others about our environment. 

Cities like Miami see the oceans are rising and are raising their street levels higher but that will have no effect on the continued warming, acidifying and rising. Permafrost and glaciers are melting. The Great Barrier coral reef has lost one-third of its ecosystem (bleaching) and the rest will soon be dead. Air pollution is making it difficult to breathe. Floods deluge some places; drought elsewhere. Fires burn all over the planet causing loss of life and property devastation. All these effects are due to carbon particles parts per million (ppm) in the atmosphere. It should be around 350 ppm but has risen to 413.09 ppm as of this writing (April 13, 2019), causing record-breaking weather and environmental consequences. Support of the Hugh Manatee icon promotes understanding to help fight climate change.

Who will pick up this icon to show support of making earth-friendly choices?

As a "Friend of Hugh Manatee" when you purchase any earth-friendly items that will soon be for sale in our Gift Shop, we will take after-expenses profits to donate books and/or DVDs to school libraries so the kids can learn about ecology, climate change, and how to help preserve the sustainability of planet Earth.

Be someone who cares about the only place we call home...Earth. Display the Hugh Manatee mascot with pride and buy green products, divest your financial ties from entities that have ties to the fossil fuel industry and invest in wind, solar, geothermal and water energy companies, plus do all you can to recycle and promote earth-friendly lifestyles. Demand from your elected officials to stop taking campaign contributions from firms that make a mess of our planet with their policies.

The recent political season puts the planet in further jeopardy with the withdrawal from the Paris Agreement and new, lax EPA policies. Now, more than ever, we need people to do good things for humanity. This idea is endorsed by Noam Chomsky, PhD, Linguist and Political Activist as well as Walt Meier, PhD Climate Scientist. What are you doing that is earth-friendly? Are you recycling, switching away from wasteful incandescent bulbs, using sustainable materials, using low VOC paint and generally lowering your carbon footprint?
